Delano High School had its 109th annual commencement ceremony Friday, June 3 on campus at Gene Beck Stadium.

It was a packed house as DHS recognized 307 graduates who boasted numerous accolades. These accolades included two students, Francisco Heredia and Jared Martinez, who earned an AA degree before their high school diploma. There were 48 with a 4.0 grade point average or above, and many earning Golden State Seals and Biliteracy Seals.

The graduates were addressed by their principal, Shondra Walker, Catherine Starling, English teacher, Esaul Garcia, valedictorian, and Jason Garcia, superintendent. The DHS Chamber Choir and band performed in the pre-show and throughout the ceremony.

These students were sophomores when their school closed during the pandemic and didn’t return to campus until their senior year. Thanks to the support of their families, their hard-working teachers, and the students’ own resilience and determination, these graduates found success and walked across the stage to the cheers of the Delano community. 

Delano High School administration would like to thank the DJUHSD board of trustees for their leadership, the district administration team for their guidance, the Delano Lions Club for donating eight-semester honor roll plaques, Bakersfield College for their partnership, DHS staff and faculty, and the Delano community for their never-ending support of our students. 

To the DHS Class of 2022 – Congratulations and don’t forget. Once a Tiger, always a Tiger!
